My name is Bean and this is my blog. Hence the name. If you have comments or questions, just leave them in the comments area.
I'm going on two vacations in the next few weeks and I am super STOKED about both of them.
Texas: Feb 18 - Feb 23
Next Wednesday, mothereffer and I will be hopping on a plane bound for The Lone Star State. We'll be visiting with cousins (including the fabled Larry Feathers) and aunts and uncles for 5 days. Our hosts have all kinds of fun stuff planned, including but not limited to: a trip to Humperdinks for some grub and some locally brewed beers, dinner at Medieval Times and Traildust, a visit to the Conspiracy Museum (if it is still around) and maybe some golf. More than anything, though, I'm looking forward to hanging out with cousins that I've seen very rarely in the past 15-20 years.
Colorado: Feb 27 - Mar 3
A mere 4 days after arriving back from Texas, I'll board another plane, this time with the wif, destined for the Denver/Boulder area. We're meeting Stutzenator at the Winter Park ski resort and kickin it there for 4 days (one of which is my birthday - thanks Stef!). Stef doesn't ski, so she's going to be investigating alternative activities while Stutz and I tear the mountian to shreds with our superhuman-like snowboarding skills. This will mark my first real snowboarding trip "out west" and I am about to pee my pants just thinking about it! It would be awesome if any of you Colorado bloggers would like to join us for one or more days! Holla back!
PS - I'm stoked for LOST tonight, and will be blogging a recap of the first 5 eps soon.

What about the last trip to Boulder?
Chaz (February 11, 2009 at 09:20:52 AM):
Also, so jealous about skiing out there again.
Finch (February 11, 2009 at 09:20:53 AM):
Beanley Johnson, why did you settle on Winter Park? I'd be up for coming out with you guys, but I have a season pass to Copper.
Also, huzzah for the LOST brogs.

Last time I went to boulder, I tried curt's snowboard for a few runs... I was not, however, a confident or competent snowboarder at that time.
Finch: Stef picked Winter Park while planning the surprise. I don't know one resort from the other out there - all I know is WP is about eleventy billion times bigger than anywhere in the midwest. If you are able to come, we can discuss LOST theories on the chairlift!

I've been to Winter Park, it's pretty nice. I tend not to want to go there, because on snowy/icy days it's one heck of a scary drive. Count me tentatively IN.

re lost: stoked, and I don't believe you re: recap
Bigwillis (February 13, 2009 at 05:29:10 AM):
Are you going to ski the K12?
Finch (February 13, 2009 at 08:15:06 AM):
Go that way, really really fast. If something gets in your way, turn.
Jewfish (February 13, 2009 at 08:56:33 AM):
Teh wif and I didn't get a pass this year, but we'd probably be up for meeting you one day. I've never been to winter park, but I know that one tim there was an avalanche that buried the road going there.
We may investigate the ski train that takes you up and back. I've wanted to give that a shot for a while now.
bean (February 26, 2009 at 06:42:53 AM):
Texas was a blast. Heading out tomorrow for trip #2. Funch/Jewfich - call me or Stutz if you guys can make it out any of the days we are there (Sat/Sun/Mon).
Finch (February 26, 2009 at 08:06:49 AM):
I'm personally thinking Monday. I'll have to check with teh jew.
